    Description

    Hi everybody. My name is Vicki. I live with my husband Dirk (34) on a farm one and a half hour north from berlin. He´s a musican, so sometimes it can be loud in the house. We have some farm animals: chickens, rabbits, turkeys and our two lovley dogs. My dream is to be 100% independent from food markets. I´m working on it since 3 years and its still a long way. If you like this project and like to support me, I would love to host you!

    We enjoy the silence and the solitude, please don´t aspect talk to midnight everyday with a lot of people. That´s not us. But sometimes we love campfires and with a chilled drink in a hand and a guitar on the other even our nights can get long;)

    (...btw if you like to do party we can organise a few days in berlin for you)

    I need help in my garden. This is my first garden year and i didnt expect so much work :o The garden is 100qm large. I´m learning everything by doing. Not everything is working but its such a joy to see every fruit that grows. You can help by feeding and cleaning the animals, walk the dogs in a beautiful landscape. And helping me to improve my english! Sometimes we build or maintain things. I want to build a tipi. Things like that.

    We have a brandnew tinyhouse in the backyard. And a caranvan. We have a free bedroom in our house, except when we rent the house to holiyday guests. Please ask me what´s free for you when you know our travel dates. Everybody has special wishes about food. We just buy vegan food when we go shopping. But of course our farm animals are not just there for petting. Please let us know what you like to eat or don´t eat, i´ll bring it. Most of the time you will cook for yourself. But i would be nice to cook together some evenings!
